    One thought on “Moment of Truth”

    1. 3.5 starsI wish this story were published and presented as a novel vs. a series of 100-page novellas that end with barely whispered happy-for-nows. I read the blurb for the third installment in the series, Moment of Clarity, and that one seems to contain yet more drama, with no HEA in sight. Collin and Tanner are sharing an attic bedroom in a big house on Fire Island for the summer. Collin, still estranged from his family, is not comfortable being out and jealous of the women who throw themselve [...]

    2. I liked this one a lot."Don't let little Gigi over there mess with your head.""Gigi?" I had no idea what she was talking about."GG-Gabby and Grabby."The trick with this pair is that the do things other couples don't. In the first book Tanner suggests Collin should (view spoiler)[watch porn (hide spoiler)] to see if he wants to try something. In this novel, Collin decides to (view spoiler)[trim himself (hide spoiler)] and Tanner catches him doing so and finishes the task. I thought that moment wa [...]

    3. Seguimos con Collin y Tanner, y ellos siguen tan dulces No va a cambiar mi vida, pero la serie es dulce y está bien escrita, es agradable de leer.

    4. This is the 2nd part of a novella series. It's best to read them in order.4.5 stars for this contemporary M/M romanceCollin and Tanner are two college roommates who recently began a gay relationship. They had been friends long before becoming lovers, but Collin was closeted and Tanner is bisexual. Collin came out to his mother, a devout Catholic, who disowned him. He is now staying in a house with Tanner and several others on Fire island to work and earn money for his college as all funds have b [...]

    5. I was really impressed with book one, and book two is even better. This series is about two young men starting out a relationship in college. Book one was all about sneaky discovery. Book two follows them as they navigate the ups and downs, the awkward moments and the ohmigod revelations.I'm crazy about these boys. They are both super sweet and so green. The reader gets to figure things out with them as they go. I'm not a gay man so I don't have first hand knowledge, but to me as a reader, it fe [...]

    7. This was a nice continuation of book one. Not as earth shattering as the first, but that's sorta always the case for me with sequels and the initial new relationship stuff has worn off some, since that's what I find most emotional. But they were sweet, and a few super smexy scenes including their first full on penetration. But I found the climax a little aggravating. We all felt it coming but I still couldn't help but roll my eyes at Collin's idiocy. It happened really fast, really out of nowher [...]

    9. ***POSSIBLBE SPOILERS******a free copy of the book was provided by the author via the M/M group’s DBML program on GR in exchange for an honest review***Moment of Truth is book 2 in Karen Stivali's Moment in Time series. The opening of Moment of Truth is a continuation from book 1, Moment of Impact. As such, I highly recommend reading the books in order. If you have not read book 1, here is a comparison to quickly sum up the differences between the main characters: Collinraised by a devout Cath [...]

    12. 3.5 StarsMoment of Truth continues the relationship of Collin and Tanner. Collin was disowned by his family after coming out to them but he is determined to be himself.

    13. The second instalment of the series sees Collin & Tanner on Fire Island where the insecurities of a new relationship come into play with temptation everywhere! Having recently reread Fifty Shades to try to work out why I hated it, all my negative issues with that book are some of the reasons why I love Karen's writing. Collins voice feels genuine & real. The emotions & relationship of Collin & Tanner could be a that of any couple. They are relatable & extremely likeable. My o [...]

    14. Book 2 picks up with the college year coming to a close and summer vacation starting. Collin will spend the summer working on Fire Island waiting on tables at a restaurant with Tanner. When Collin and Tanner arrive at their summer job, their boss has made a last minute change as Tanner's job has changed to bartending at a nearby nightclub. They share a house with several other people including Wendy from book one, who's only there on weekends to visit her boyfriend Dex, who is also a housemate. [...]

    15. True rating 2.5 stars JUST because of the sex scenes, otherwise my rating would be 1 star!! I couldn’t round up to 3 stars because the ending annoyed me enough where LIKING this isn’t possible!! The sex scenes WERE spectacular though :-)!!My updates are ongoing as I’m reading the bundle!! The ending for this one ruined the novella for me :-/!! I do feel like things are definitely salvagaeable though, so I’m going to keep going!! I hope the 3rd novella is way better and much more similar [...]

    16. 4 'There are some things that are working for me and keeping me hooked and then there are others that are mildly annoying but I just have to know what happens. I need them to have a HEA' stars.

    18. Note: I received this book for free from the author through the MM Romance group, in exchange for an honest review.4.5This is the second installment of Karen Stivali's series "Moments in Time". We get to meet Collin and Tanner again, about three months after the end of the first book. They are on Fire island over the summer and they move temporarily into a house they share with Suzanne and Bill (the owners), Wendy (who we know from the first book and who I didn't really like anymore) and her boy [...]

The best of all, he's going to spend the whole summer with his boyfriend, Tanner.

Neithe [...]

    21. Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews**Reviewer's note: This is the second book in Karen Stivali's Moments in Time series. These are novellas about two young men coming of age and coming out of the closet. In this book as well as the first their relationship is "in progress" and neither book ends in a cliffhanger and both end in what I would call a HFN ending. I almost didn't read the first book because of this set-up but I loved is and so I'm continuing on.Once again told from [...]

    22. This is the second story for Collin and Tanner, first introduced in Moment of Impact (which ended on a happy note and can be read as a standalone). Summer has come and Tanner has invited Collin to come with him to Fire Island, a resort area, to work for the summer. It's a different place than Collin has ever been before, one where being gay isn't a big deal and they are able to spend time together while earning money for the next year of college. But being out of the closet still isn't that easy [...]

    23. In Moment of Time Karen Stivali takes the relationship between Collin and Tanner onto the next level, both physically and emotionally. Although being on Fire Island gives both young men the freedom to openly display their affection for one another, their summer break tests the strength of their relationship.The way in which Karen Stivali chooses to develop Collin’s characters allows us to see a different side of him than the one we were shown in Moment of Impact. In the first book, I liked his [...]

    24. **This book was provided to me by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review**It's summer time and Collin and Tanner are headed to Fire Island for work and some fun in the sun on the beach! Collin has gotten a job at the restaurant where Tanner has worked the last few summers. A very nervous Collin meets all the house mates and things seem to be going good, but when a beach neighbor, Amy starts hanging onto not only Tanner's every word, but onto Tanner himself, Collin's fear, uncertai [...]

    25. *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* This is the second book in theMoments in Time series.Tanner and Collin are spending their summer working and living in Fire Island with Wendy and her boyfriend Dex, Maggie (Tanner father’s ex) , Bryan (Suzanne’s brother), Suzanne and her husband Bill, in the same house.In this book, the readers have the chance to read more about Collin and his relationship with Tanner; Collin adores Tanner and vice versa but he’s still worr [...]

    26. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.So, I think the author is still keeping true to her mission, but I do wish that this was presented as a complete novel. Not that the short story isn't complete and the issues are real, not contrived if some of the other characters are, but it is kinda frustrating.I could have done without Wendy, Maggie and Dex. The entire episode was childish and stupid. Jason was an interesting element seeing as Collin has only ever been with Tanner [...]

    27. So I really liked getting to see more of Tanner and Collin in this book. They both go to the beach to work for the summer and stay together which I really loved that they got that time together.But all the drama and he kissed him and he hugged her and that guy is cheating on his girlfriend while she did the same to him was so much unneeded drama that it just started to annoy me so much.Yes you do get the sweet between these two men but everything else just overshadowed the good and was just real [...]

    28. Due to time I was forced to read these books out of order but that didn’t seem to take anything away from the story. It was almost like just going back in time. Karen Stivali clear has a way with words and it comes across in every page. I loved reading this book and love the characters. I just wish it had been longer. I was able to spend time with some really excellent characters and am glad I don’t have to wait for book 3. Excellent job!! I was given this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exch [...]

    29. TeaserThrough Robert Neiman’s narration of Karin Stivali’s Moment of Truth, book two in her Moments in Time series, it felt as if I were right there with the characters as they learned to navigate a new relationship. I feel as if through the marriage of author and narrator they portrayed just what it’s like to be a 19 year old, having a boyfriend and coming to grips with losing your family because you came out to them.See Full Review at Kimmers' Erotic Book Banterbit/2bF6r8s

    30. DNF at 60%I want to jump into the book and kiss that 'female' character, with a CHAIR , in her face.And slapped Tanner, and yelled at Collin for their stupidity. The hot sex was not worth my time.Pissed off !
